It's a classic ride that you've probably seen at every carnival. You sit in a swing and let the machine whip you around and around.
For those who don't get dizzy easily, it is usually a really fun time.
But according to reports, fairgoers in Naples, Italy were in for much more than a traditional swing-ride on this day.
The video shows the ride start to wobble as passengers gained speed.
Eventually, the centripetal force was too much to keep the ride upright. Children went flying to the pavement as adults scrambled to help.
Unfortunately, at least twenty people were injured in the horrific incident per reports.
The nightmare of an incident was captured on video from multiple angles.
